I Chronicles 29:19 NKJV “And give my son Solomon a loyal heart to keep Your commandments and Your testimonies and Your statutes, to do all these things, and to build the temple for which I have made provision.”
I think that what is lacking in the lives of a lot of us is a loyal heart. Though we go to church, read our Bibles, pray, read and listen to several messages, yet we live and do as we please. We are simply not loyal to God and to His word.
As with many other things in life, serving the Lord is a choice. No one was forced to believe; if any one was forced to become a Christian, that person certainly needs a genuine encounter with God. If we willingly call Him Lord, why then aren’t we loyal and submissive to Him?
We must stop living as though God isn’t watching us. We can’t continue to deceive ourselves! If we say that we have believed, then let us live as believers, in strict obedience to the words of our Master. God knows His own – those who are loyal to Him, and He will reward them accordingly. Proverbs 28:20 says that a faithful man will abound with blessings. Amen!
